The Knocks

New York City-based electronic duo, The Knocks, were back in their hometown on tour with St. Lucia showing at Terminal 5, and Guest of a Guest got a chance to briefly chat and catch up. Before focusing on creating their own namesake music, the boys were the masterminds behind the beats of some of your favorite artists (Rihanna, Britney Spears, Marina & The Diamonds, and Ellie Goulding, to name a few). Fast forward to today and Ben “DJ B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson are releasing their own tunes and continuing to team up for funky collaborations.
